Cable premiere dates: When to expect more 'Dexter,' 'Psych,' and, um, 'I Used to Be Fat'

Just because ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CW are rolling out all their finest, doesn’t mean all the cable networks have hung out the Gone Fishin’ signs. There are still plenty of good series to look forward to from the likes of Showtime, TLC, BBC America et al. (Well, except maybe Texas Multi Mamas on WE. What the heck is that?)

  • Mo

    Given that Ken Tucker was recapping the show’s first season, it’s weird that you forgot to add Work of Art on Bravo, starting Oct 12. I’m looking forward to it and to reading Ken’s recaps afterwards.

  • James

    I miss Dirty Money.

  • Rhonda G

    Sept. 30
    The Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs (Food)

    This is wrong. Food Network keeps airing commercials saying “Coming in October” and they haven’t named a date as of yet.

  • hawaiiwoman

    Where the heck is The Killing?

    • Boitumelom

      You make a bunch of black and white statements like he is the ENTIRE esaron the show is so good and he is the ONLY ONE who should get credit and then act like I’m the one saying those things. What a joke. The show is a collaborative effort, but to act as though Dexter could be played by anyone is just absurd. MCH owns the role and much (not all) of the show’s success is because of him. Most of the hundreds of people working as Dexter’s crew are replaceable, MCH is not. The important people (actors, writers, directors, producers) are paid well. Sorry if you’re not happy with your PA wages.
